I received my DInc about 3 weeks ago, after waiting for almost 4 weeks for the phone. Towards the tail end of my wait, I read of some people getting an email from Verizon with a $25 gift card, as it had been announced that some people were facing an extra 7 day wait ON TOP of their original quoted wait. I never received an email, but it didn't bug me much.
Well, in the mail on Saturday was a letter from Verizon, stating their apology for the extended wait for the DInc. Included was a $25 gift card! Nice little surprise there. I'll probably just put it towards my bill (as the VZW accessories are typically a premium price).
Just wondering if anyone else is receiving the surprise letter?
i have had my inc since the beginning of may and already had it replaced 3 times and have been without it for almost a total of a month worth of waiting for it
Thanks...but your posts have absolutely nothing to do with this topic.

Nope. Its a $25 Verizon promotional card (not a Visa gift card, for example). Its just one of those paper-type cards attached to the letter. I highly doubt Verizon will send out public-sector gift cards. Will cost them A LOT more than just giving Verizon gift cards.
Hm... I wonder when the cutoff is? I ordered May 12 and received it May 31. It wasn't actually supposed to ship until 5/31, but they got it out the door a couple days early. Wouldn't mind a $25 gift card. Need a car charger...
My SD card came in the phone already with no info on it... I didn't even know it was there until I was going through my phone settings!
I got the giftcard too and used it over the weekend in the store for the red gradient case and some screen protectors. I have a 25% corp. discount so it only ended up being a couple dollars. Definitely worth having to wait a couple extra days!
I think this $25 gift card thing was on the front page of this site a few weeks back. They are doing it to keep people happy or what not. Sounds like a really cool thing for them to do, even if you can only use it in store for stuff. Better than them saying," tough deal with it", I suppose. Very nice!
